Almaville was created to foster a greater sense of community in our local neighbourhood. Alma means ‘soul’ in Spanish and ville is the French word for ‘town’ or ‘city’. Co-created together with the one and only Alex Stott, Almaville is a small but vibrant ‘mini-suburb’ in a busy pocket of Melbourne. Since the first flyer hit the letterbox of our neighbours’ in late 2015, Almaville has now grown into a real community of hundreds of neighbours coming together online and offline. Because like Hugh Mackay says it so wisely, ‘it’s not where we live, it’s how we live, that matters’.
